ASSEMBLIES of God High School (AOGHS) recorded a four wicket victory over Nasinu Secondary School in the U18 competition of the Suva Secondary Schools Cricket Competition on Friday.

A statement from Cricket Fiji said AOG won the toss and elected to field as Nasinu went to bat and lost nine wickets for 58 runs in their allotted ten overs.

"Just like in many other matches of the U18 boys' division, Ravula was the best for Nasinu with the bat, scoring 13 runs, while with the ball for AOG, Taraiasi was exception, taking 5-8 off his two overs," said the statement.

In reply, AOG started well and it seemed like they were on course for a comfortable victory when they scored 49 runs in six overs after the loss of four wickets.

However, accurate bowling and tight fielding from Nasinu made AOG struggle to score the runs that allowed them to get the victory.

"Some great bowling from Kiniviliame (3-5 off two overs) brought Nasinsu right back into the game, with the result pending of the final over of the match.

"In the end it was Taraiasi who secured victory for his school, finishing on 16 not out."

The semi-finals of the competition will be played next week at Albert Park.
